Overview

West Point, New York, home of the United States Military Academy, is one of the nation’s most famous and unique landscapes. Established in 1802 to train engineer officers for the Army, West Point has for over 200 years produced many of the country’s greatest leaders, including Ulysses S. Grant, Dwight D. Eisenhower, George S. Patton, and Douglas A. MacArthur. With a selection of fine historic images from their best-selling book, Historic Photos of West Point, Eugene J. Palka and Jon C. Malinowski provide a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the development of West Point. With over 100 photos from the Library of Congress, National Archives, and the United States Military Academy, Remembering West Point shows the academy as it was from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. These black-and-white photos highlight special occasions, demolished and existing buildings, and cadets in class, during military training, and on the fields of friendly strife. This is West Point as you have never seen it.
